Avi Goldfarb is the Rotman Chair in Artificial Intelligence and Healthcare and Professor of Marketing at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto and chief data scientist at the Creative Destruction Lab. He is the co-author of the bestselling books “Prediction Machines” and “Power and Prediction."
In this talk, Goldfarb will explore how artificial intelligence presents opportunities and threats in extraordinary and unexpected ways. Identifying AI’s ability to decouple prediction from other aspects of decision-making as a key to its transformative impact, Goldfarb contends that it will require the invention of new ways of operating—many of which remain undiscovered — to truly unleash AI’s innovative potential.
This event is hosted by the Canada-UK Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by Rotman School of Management, CGI, OpenText, and Gowling WLG.
